    Climate change is a global phenomenon. Its impact on agricultural activities in developing countries has increased dramatically. Understanding how farmers perceive climate change and how they adapt to it is very important to the implementation of adequate policies for agricultural and food security. This paper aims to contribute to an understanding of farmers’ adaptation choices Cited by: × This book examins the food security threats facing 11 of the countries that make up West Africa - Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo - and explores how climate change will increase the efforts needed to achieve sustainable food security throughout the region.

Burkina Faso (UK: / b ɜːr ˌ k iː n ə ˈ f æ s oʊ /, US: /-ˈ f ɑː s oʊ / (); French: [buʁkina faso]) is a landlocked country in West covers an area of aroundsquare kilometres (, sq mi) and is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north; Niger to the east; Benin to the southeast; Togo and Ghana to the south; and Ivory Coast to the l and largest city: Ouagadougou.

The objective of this research was to narrow the range of values characterizing the limits within which estimates are expected to fall in the diagnostics of agroclimatic risks.

Assessments were made by analyzing historical observations and evaluating the influence of heat stress and rainfall variability on crop water demand, biomass and grain.

Salack et al.: Crop−climate ensemble scenarios to improve risk assessment while the loss in biomass is reduced to 3 to 5 % over the majority of the reference stations (Fig.

On the other hand, Sanfo et al. () stated that a 3 × 10 5 m 3 capacity reservoir in Burkina Faso is able to irrigate a variable area in the range of 17 to 25 ha and that dry season production.

Abstract. The impact of climate variability is expected to have significant impacts on crop production in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Being a region with high climate vulnerability, the quantification and understanding of the extent and rate of impact of climate variability on crop productivity is Author: Ephraim Sekyi-Annan, Ernest Nti Acheampong, Nicholas Ozor.

Burkina Faso ([buʁkina faso]) is a Burkina Faso is a Burkinabé (/ b ər ˈ k iː n ə b eɪ / bər-KEE-nə-bay). The northwestern part of present-day Burkina Faso was populated by.

Climate variability and change is regarded as having major impacts on key sustainable socio-economic and environmental indicators in Sub-Saharan West Africa.

Because of these concerns, we investigated smallholders knowledge, skills, and aspirations about managing climate change, and document adaptation strategies used in the semi-arid regions coming from Burkina Faso, Chad and by: 6.

1 INTRODUCTION. Agriculture plays a critical role in most African economies and among the livelihood strategies of a majority of Africans (Collier & Dercon, ).Yet African agriculture is marked by low productivity, low levels of investment, and high levels of weather and climate‐related risk (Sonwa et al., ).Weather and climate services (WCS), which involve the production, translation Cited by: 7.

The locust attack of – affected Burkina Faso and surrounding countries. Food aid for northern Burkina, Mali and Niger was bought in southern parts of Burkina Faso, which caused cereals to disappear entirely from local markets within the country (Bronkhorst 12).

Burkina Faso is an ethnically integrated, secular state. Most of Burkina Faso's people are concentrated in the south and centre of the country, where their density sometimes exceeds 48 persons per square kilometre (/sq. mi.). Hundreds of thousands of Burkinabè migrate regularly to Ivory Coast and Ghana, mainly for seasonal agricultural work.

Figure 1. The Continental Sahel Region used in this study covering parts of Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger (shaded). The boundaries of Continental Sahel follow the demarcation by Ba et al. () with a Southern boundary of 9°N, a Western boundary of 5°W and a vague. Abstract. Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is called camel’s crop and it is a major dryland cereal crop which has multipurpose uses like food, feed, fodder, and bioethanol is nutritionally superior to other fine cereals such as rice and wheat with high fiber and mineral content.

As a model for the tropical grasses, sorghum is a logical complement to rice. Changes in climate, land use, and population growth has put immense pressure on the use of water resources in agriculture. Non-irrigated fields suffer from variable water stress, leading to an increase in the implementation of irrigation technologies, thus stressing the need to analyze diverse irrigation practices.

Moench) is widely used as food, feed, fiber, and bioenergy grain is used as food or feed; the stem can be used as a source of fiber, fuel, and lately as feedstock for cellulosic ethanol.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the top sorghum producing countries have been the United States, Nigeria, India, Mexico, and Argentina ().
